Expected fluxbox to be able to draw icons propely/correctly on toolbar.
Imstead, with draw pictures on toolbar option enabled, fluxbox cannot properly draw xfce4-terminal icon on tooldbar.
Icon looks like it's made of snow or static. Most is not all other icons are properly drawn as pictures on toolbar.

Upstream found and fixed this issue.

Have a nice day :)

Use _NET_WM_ICON from 32bit apps (xfce4-terminal) correctly
The icons coming from _NET_WM_ICON are argb32. fluxbox uses such icons
in entities such as 'clientmenu', 'iconbar', 'titlebar'. These entities
are not related to the depth of the winclient but to fluxbox's default
depth. Using 'winclient.depth()' is a mistake, since fluxbox is unable
to copy pixmaps from 32bit to 24/16/15bit.

It is not necessary either, because fluxbox should extract the argb32 icon
data directly into the pixmap with the correct depth in the first place.

This fixes (reopened) bug #1852693.

Note: The whole icon code in fluxbox is quite messy, lots of copying and
scaling. It might be simpler and fater to just extract the icon when needed
, in just the size that is needed.

This bug was fixed in the package fluxbox - 1.3.2-2

fluxbox (1.3.2-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fixing a minor headache with not shipping .png images, since most
    background setters can't set .svg. (Closes: #645120)
     - I've (as a result) been forced to add the .png files to the
       source/include-binaries file.

fluxbox (1.3.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Patch by Harald Jenny to fix the debian-light theme. (Closes: #645057)
  * Changed the author header in the patches/ directory - malformed author
  * Upstream fix closed a bug back in 1.3.0 - we'll just close that out with the
    new release (Closes: #617638). Thanks, Frédéric and lmwangi!
  * Upstream signal handling is fixed up a great deal thanks to Pavelo
    - (Closes: #532094) - Thanks, Phil!
    - (Closes: #596029) - Thanks, James! (This one was particularly annoying)
  * Overhauled the copyright file - we're all set (Closes: #585180) - Thanks,
    - While I was in there, migrated to the latest version of DEP5.
  * The icon handling has been fixed up (LP: #361389) - thanks dsyates!
  * Please note that this is no longer non-DFSG free upstream. This release
    no longer needs DFSG hacks.
     - Unmangled watch file.
